Students in grades 9 

through 12 returned to 
school September 3, 1996, 
to face an aspect of life for- 
gotten over summer. Bring- 
ing two sides of life — a per- 

sonal life and school life — together called for a merge, and students

lanes of Krafft Road and poured into the two front entrances. 
Schedules in hand, the search for a niche inside school began. 

With introductions and adjustments soon aside, a year of learn- 
ing, student activities, and new experiences unfolded for the 1648 
students enrolled on day one. Improvements such as new chemistry 
and AP biology labs gave the science-minded opportunities to learn 
and perform experiments in better conditions. “I like the fact that 
we have room to spread out now when we do labs,” said Jennifer 
Johnson (’99).

A second gymnasium 
provided more space for 
students with high physical 
education goals. Classes 
used the new gymnasium 
for more focused training, while team sports such as basketball and 
volleyball saved time by playing games simultaneously. 

Internet access in the media center and on up to 75 computers 
throughout school gave students greater opportunities to develop 
knowledge and information from aspects around the world. Infor- 
mation from accessible computers in the media center aided stu- 
dents while gathering opinions and reviewing facts for research 
papers. “Going on-line is cool because you can learn things from 
other people around the world,” said Jeff Rowe (’00). 

Life, inside and outside of school, proved to be a challenge for 
some and a well-balanced act for others. As opportunity expanded 
around students, they took hold and realized there was a spot for 
them on both sides.

Seniors, Juniors, Sophomores, 
or Freshmen — who will win the 
skis for Snow 1996? 

Spirit Week started with weird 
hair day, followed hy college/ 
sweats day. A snowstorm over 
Wednesday and Thursday result- 
ed in two snow days. “It put 
more stress on people to get 
things for Snow f organized, hut 
we made the best of it/’ said 
Beth Artman ('96). 

Despite this break, the penny 
jars went well. Money raised 
went to Chad Coleman, a fifth- 
grader with cancer at Keewahdin 
Elementary. Freshmen piled up 
the most pennies to win. 

The assembly gave students a 
chance to show 

their skills in 

events. “The life- 
saver pass was a 
lot of fun. I made 
a fool out of my- 
self, but I enjoyed 
it," said Melody 
Rosenberg ('98). 

Snow Days de- 
layed voting for

crowning of Nick 
Smerer f 96) took

Games 6 Dance 

A night of fun and playful roy- 
alty followed a day packed with 
games and activity. The Snow 
Dance and Games took place on 
Saturday. March 23, following 
spirit week. 

The morning games gave 
members of each class an oppor- 
tunity for competition and a 
chance to earn points for their 
class. Members of each class had 
chances to sign up to participate 
in games such as soccer, wom- 
en's football, euchre tourna- 
ments, and volleyball. 

Halfway through the dance 
came the much-awaited an- 
nouncement that the sophomores

tied with seniors at 50 points in 
the games. How- 
ever, due to prior 

competitive spirit 
week participa- 
tion, the sopho- 
mores passed the 
seniors by a mar- 
gin of eleven 
points, winning 
the skis. 

“It was unex-

classmen by win-

said Lisa Beedon (’98).

Wide smiles shone through the 
noisy hallways while chatter 
drifted out of classrooms: 
“Spring Break or Bust!" 

Ways a student could spend 
the week off school were im- 
measurable. Some chose to 
spend their time in the warm sun; 
others chose chillier options, 
such as skiing in the mountains. 
Students visited Mexico, Myrtle 
Beach, Florida, and Colorado. 

“I went to Florida to see my 
family and meet my hero Goofy 
at Disney World," said Tim Fah- 
ey (’98). 

Those who stayed home spent 
days relaxing or with friends. 
“Even though I didn't go away. 

1 enjoyed my spring 
to work but it was 
away from the 
stress at school," 
said Brandi Bon- 
ney ('98). 

Ready to finish 
the school year, 
students returned 
reminiscing about 
sunny skies, blue 
waves, and snow- 
capped moun- 
tains, while others 
recalled the relax- 
ing week.

Go ivies to Li (ye 

As the lights dimmed, voices 
began drifting into the auditori- 
um, and the aisles filled with the 
procession of nuns carrying can- 
dles. February 28th was the night 
the cast had prepared for, for 
months; “The Sound of Music" 
had begun. 

November through March the 
cast and crew worked to memo- 
rize lines, prepare sets and cos- 
tumes. Being involved required 
dedication. “Being in a play 
means you must be willing to 
commit from the very begin- 
ning," said Jenna Allabach ('98). 

Stephanie Vizdos ('97) played 
Maria, a nun assigned to be gov- 
erness over Captain von Trapp's 

(Micah Hall '96) children. Un- 
sure of her endeavor, her love of 
children and be- 
liefs in the church 

help her bring 
music back into 
the family. 

The play sold 
out two of the 
three nights, 
proving dedica- 
tion was worth- 
while. "We did a 
great job, and put 
on a great show. I 
was proud to be a 
part of it,” said 
Jolene Lepien ('97).

A night of magic began as the 
lights dimmed and the music 
started to play. Planning prom 
took months of preparation to 
create the special memories for 
the class of 1996. The elegant at- 
mosphere of the Thomas Edison 
Inn added to the enchantment. 

Hazy weather did not keep 
prom-goers from having a won- 
derful time. Laughing and danc- 
ing the night away proved to be 
top priority for seniors and their 

Senior prom was not only at- 
tended by seniors because many 
underclassmen often went with 
senior dates. “I was honored to 

go to prom with my boyfriend 
Brad Driscoll 

( % 96). The eve- 

ning turned out to 
be as fun-filled 
and as exciting as 
I thought it would 
be,” said Sarah

“Left — right — left — right/’ 
went through seniors’ heads as 
they marched before peers in cap 
and gown. Working together for 
one of the last times was a mem- 
orable moment. 

Many seniors stood proudly 
while their names were called for 
special recognition in scholar- 
ships and other awards. 

Small chuckles and smiles ap- 
peared as Deena Currie f 96) and 
Jody Relken (’96) recalled the 
four years spent together. Senior 
song, “Learning to Fly/’ was 
sung by Masafumi Katafuchi 
(’96) and LaShell Brooks (’96). 

Seniors were happy, yet sad to 
leave. “It was exciting that I 

could look up in the stands and 
people were cheering and clap- 
ping for me,” 

said Phil 

Schmuck (’96). 

Emotions ran 
high when the 
seniors stood up 
to leave the cere-

came true — they

Summer began with students 
wearing shorts in 60-degree 
weather, hoping soon that sum-

As weather improved, students 
ripped their swimsuits out of 
elongated hibernation in bed-

cause it was too cool this sum-

Mardi Gras 

IKe S (Me. Old 

Hunting, snow-mobiling, rol- 
lerblading and frisbee-golfing 
were a few activities that students 
participated in outside of school 

“I am not involved with many 
school activities because I would 
rather spend my free time with 
my friends on our motorcycles, 
or out in the woods hunting," 
said Jeff Bugaiski (’00). 

The feeling of competition and 
the sheer adrenaline rush felt by 
participants of alternative sports 
does not differ from that experi- 
enced by participants of organ- 
ized team sports. Alternative 
sports also teach students skills 
they will one day be able to use 

in our changing 
world. "Martial 
Arts isn't about 
hurting others, 
it's about defend- 
ing yourself and 
learning. That is 
important to me," 
said Rick Kinert 
(’97). Many stu- 
dents have found 
constructive ways 
to occupy their 
free time with a 
variety of alter- 
native sports.

Changing bed pans, reading

tasks called upon the office aides. Student aides enjoyed 
playing the role of working with the staff and getting hands- 
on secretarial training skills. 

“I like being an office aide, because 1 get to run passes back and 
forth and talk to different people. I don't care about running back 
and forth from upstairs. 1 very much enjoy the company and help 
from the other attendance aides.”

and enjoy working with Mrs. Whitford and the other student aides. I 
don't like rude people and having to go upstairs for passes.”

For sonic, the concept of co-op is a glamorous one. Leav- 
ing school early to work for pay and a credit attracted many, 
hut the hard work co-op students exemplified helped them 
to learn to operate in a work-place atmosphere. 

“I like co-op because 1 get out of school earlier than a lot of the 
other kids! But really, the advantages of taking co-op are that you 
take a marketing class first, so 1 learned about marketing in a lot of 
ways. Disadvantages would include not being able to see my friends 
as much.” 

— Richelle Jurk (’97) 

“Through co-op. I get a school credit and pay for a job at Glacier

46 • American History 



Historians often say that if people do not learn from his- 
tory, history will repeat itself and the same mistakes will 
happen again in the future. In American History, students 
studied social, economic, and political behaviors of eras 
throughout the history of our country. 

“I enjoyed learning about history because you can learn from it, 
and it can be very entertaining. I would like to make a career choice 
related to what I have learned in class. I would very much like to 
become an American History teacher.” 

— Jill Silver (’98) 

“History is enjoyable because in learning about the past, I learn 
about where I came from, and it gives more meaning to life itself. 1 
don't plan having a career related to American History because I’m 
going into the Air Force.” 

— Jeremy Dodder ('99)

Communication is essential in a world that focuses on 
results. By learning and practicing public speaking and com- 
munication with the deaf community, students made them- 
selves more accessible to careers that involve relating to oth- 
ers, whoever they may be. 

“In sign language. I've built self-confidence and my self-esteem 
through acting out in front of people. 1 am a second year student. 1 
wanted to learn a language, and the only one I stick to is sign. I've 
continued with it because I love class-signing and learning new 


— Joni Schef ('98) 

“Speech is a groovy class. It has helped me to better my public 
speaking abilities. I've learned that everybody gets nervous 
sometimes, and not to worry about it. My favorite speech has been 
the impromptu speech. My topic was turtles, and it was pretty 


— Jon Dixon (’99)

of planning games and activities were necessary.

Williams (’98) and Joni Schef (’98) demonstrate

dding up 

Protractors, graphing calculators, rulers, and compasses 
filled the desks of dedicated math students. Whether the 
class dealt with basic mathematical concepts or was an ad- 
vanced study class, students worked with new ideas to solve 
sometimes the most baffling of problems. 

“Calculus is a very challenging class. It will get me prepared for 
college. Hopefully I’ll pass the AP exam so I do not have to take it 
in college. It moves a lot faster, and we do not have too much time 
to spend on stuff. We do spend many hours on homework, though." 

— Darouny Sonsynath (’97) 

“I like Mrs. Goldfarb’s class; it has given me the skills I need to 
do well in geometry. The hardest part of it is the theorom proofs, 
but my favorites are perimeters of triangles and other geometric 
shapes. It will help me put shapes into perspective in my future as 
an architect."

and her classmate check their figures. Geometry 
field work helped students to prepare for realistic 
situations. (Photo by unknown)

For a gifted few, creativity flows through fingers to pro- 
duce their forms of artistic expression. Whether they were 
training to do technical drawing or just painting and drawing 
for the love of it, students involved in art added color to 
school life. 

"Being an architect would be interesting and challenging. Art 
teaches me how to design, draw, and make angles. The possibilities 
of drawing are endless, and it's something to do in my free time so 
I'm not bored, and art will help my future in architecture.” 

— Jeff Pettee ('99) 

“1 was bad at drawing before I took the class, and now I can 
draw better because I know the basic steps of drawing. 1 like to 
draw and learn how to make my drawings better.” 

— Tara Muxlow (’99)

Electricity crackled as focused students hooked up wires 
and their minds into the world of electronics. Reading as- 
signments, hands-on lab work, and challenging tests were 
daily parts of preparing to learn about the future of electron- 

“I like electronics because it is very interesting. You have to be 
good in math and know a lot about computers. It’s a hard field to 
get into, but it’s a lot of fun trying! I will go on to college and get 
my bachelors degree in computers, then see where I go from there.” 

— Pete McKelvey (’97) 

“I like electronics because 1 like working in the lab and the 
hands-on experience. 1 learn better that way. Electronics is a 
lucrative business and I learn a lot of information here that most 
people learn in college. You have to study a lot, because it is a hard

Peering through a microscope, students entered an un-

classes. Labs, lectures, and tests taught students about the 
unseen world to the naked eye.

magnesium. Chemistry will help me in the future if I become a 
chemical engineer. Mr. Heidemann is a good teacher because he 
helps explain the problems. The hardest part is equations transfering

prisons, because we got to go to the library a lot. We have to read 
and write frequently in class, and 1 am not a person that likes to

favorite part of weights class is lifting in the weight room a couple 
times a week. The worst part is running lines and the one mile final

62 • Psychology 



What makes the human mind tick? What makes people 
react the way they do? In psychology, students explored 
realms of the mind to discover causes and cures of behav- 
ioral problems. By learning about behavioral patterns, stu- 
dents learned about their own attitudes. 

“The point of psychology is understanding behavior of living 
organisms and finding out what causes this behavior. It’s also 
learning about yourself and others so that you may understand 
actions better. I’ve come to understand myself and my motives 

— Kelley Baldwin ('99) 

“Psychology class can be a lot of book work sometimes. We had 
to write up and present a report on a topic we chose that pertained to 
what we were studying in class. Mine was about autistic children; it 
was pretty cool learning about people who aren't as fortunate as I

Making muffins, learning about recycling, and working 
on projects were all parts of class time in T.M.l. By working 
at the suitable pace, students learned about the basic neces- 
sities for getting along as members of society. 

“I really enjoy taking the students out shopping. It is great seeing 
everything we work on in class come together when we get out in 
the community. Graduation will be really difficult for the students as 
well as myself because there is such a strong bond between us.” 

— Mrs. Davenport 

"We practice skills in the classroom so that we can go out in the 
community and use them in real-life situations. We have a lot of fun 
but it is also a lot of work. Drop by and visit us sometime so you 

can find out what our classroom is like.”

a student participating in a gym class skill test, the sound of 
a whistle could mean relief or disappointment. Besides skill 
tests, gym class also entailed teamwork activities and skill 

“I think gym class keeps you in shape and physically fit because 
you do exercises every day that you might not be used to doing. I 
enjoy playing sports because the team work is great, and 
competition is a lot harder when I play against people my own age 
and skill level.”

“How arc we feeling today?” This simple question was 
looked at in various ways in health class. Mental, social, 
and physical health all tied in as students learned how their 
actions could affect their lives. This required class kept 
students aware of important day-to-day health. 

“The best guest speakers have been on the EMS, narcotics, and 
alcohol abuse. They were all cool because they had good stories. We 
do lots of work and review on each chapter, so we learn about what 
we should do and should not do. Like drugs and stuff.” 

— Joe Graffam (’00) 

“In health we have learned about bone structures and the 
digestive system. My favorite guest speakers have been the 
recovering alcoholics because they told a lot of stories about how 
alcoholism affects your life. I like Mr. Jamison; he is not strict but 

we still learn a lot.” 
— Paul Sloupe (’00) 

Vocabulary terms are a pari of health class that 
is necessary for students to learn. Brian Gostin- 
ger (’99) makes learning them his top priority.

Reading and writing plays, poems, and short stories were 
regular oceurrences in English classes throughout school. 
Whether it was creative writing, literary essays, or novel 
response journals, teachers kept students on top of trends in 
classic and contemporary literature. 

“I am taking a tenth grade English class with Mrs. Peattie. I 
enjoy this class because 1 like to read; it calms me. I have learned to 
express myself through my writing. To succeed in this class, you 
need to try your best.” 

— Hilary Eagle ('99) 

“I am a senior and 1 am taking AP English with Mrs. Wojtas. I 
love to write, and this is a great opportunity to express my opinions 
and style. 1 am also increasing my literature interpretation skills. I 
hope to score high on the AP exam to receive college credit.”

Cultural horizons broadened as students perfected the 
sounds of foreign languages. French. Spanish. German, and 
newly added Japanese classes explored culture through mu- 
sic. food, and field trips. Dialogue memorization taught stu- 
dents discipline in the language. 

“I'm studying Japanese because it will help with my career 
choice as an engineer. The hardest part is the pronunciation and 
memorizing how to write the letters. Mrs. Hartson drills us by 
asking us to say things and having conversations with pictures of 

movie stars.” 
— Jessica Shagena ('99) 

“I study Spanish because it is common throughout the world 
today. The most difficult part of Spanish is learning the past tense 
forms of irregular verbs. Spanish culture exists in many forms 
throughout the world. I use my language almost every day outside 

of class."

Administrators are the glue which hold our students and staff 
together. Coordinating activities, making crucial decisions, 
and striving to make our school a better place in every way 
they can, this group of six inspired individuals never tires of 
their challenging jobs. 

“The most interesting part of my job is that every day I have new, different, and 
challenging contacts with students. Working with high school students is always 
challenging, exciting, and rewarding! The most difficult part is the time 
commitment — long days, evenings, and weekends.” 

— Mr. Richard Chapman. Assistant Principal 

“There is never a dull moment. We are often planning activities and events years 
in advance. The time commitment of an Assistant Principal and Athletic Director 
is incredible. There are many fifteen hour days.” 

— Mr. Tom Rodenbaugh. Assistant Principal and Athletic Director

Administration • 75 



With years of* experience and knowledge behind them, our 
veteran faculty is a vital part of Northern. Bringing a variety 
of skills to the classroom or office, these are people who 
continuously strive to learn more. With their seasoned abil- 
ity, they were happy to share the aspects of school that have 
changed and that have remained the same. 

“To me, kids still have the same needs they have always had. More kids work 
today, though, than they have in the past. Our high goals for the students, the 
dedicated staff, and administration have stayed the same. All my years here the 
staff has been really dedicated. The administration too. I still love teaching kids — 
that is why I went into teaching and that is why I am still doing it." 

— Mr. Ronald Davey. Mathematics Teacher 

"Northern has reflected the changes that have taken place in society in general. 
The impact of technology has created the most noticeable differences. Students’ 
aspirations, values, and desires for further education are still part of an individual 
decision making process. That has not changed. What has changed is (that) 
students today arc affected by technology in every area of their life."

Contrary to rumors heard about the building, the faculty does 
not fade into the woodwork (or the cinder blocks) as soon 
as the bell rings after sixth hour. In fact, they crave winter 
recess and summer break as much as students do. Many ot 
these teachers also have thrilling summers, whose highlights 
rival those of any active student.

Four years is a huge time commitment. Yet this is the prom- 
ise made to a group of freshmen every fall and the covenant 
fulfilled to a hand of seniors each graduation. Between these 
two momentous events in the life of a class advisor, there 
are innumerable hours spent by these “dynamic duos" on 
class activities. 

“Advising gives me the opportunity to meet and work with students that 1 
otherwise would not have met. 1 believe that 1 became closer to some of the 
students by working together with them to accomplish various goals that we set 
for the class of 1997. One of the most exciting parts of being a class advisor is 
working with ‘young kids' who grow up to be wonderful young adults in four 
short years." 

— Mrs. Kim Storey, Advisor of the Class of '97 

“The most exciting part of being a class advisor is the exceptional fame and glory 
heaped upon me. Advising is a way to get to know students outside of the 
classroom environment. We raked leaves for senior citizens as a service project. 
The biggest stress is trying to get students interested in participating."

‘That is correct!" This

Whatever the sport played — soccer, wrestling, hockey — you 
were a member of a team. Teams consisted of those working to- 
gether with common goals of success. Like athletics, the load was 
lightened in life when your team — a network of friends, family, 
and teachers — came through for you. 

For the first time ever, the women’s varsity tennis team earned 
first place in States. The Northern community responded by show- 
ing pride in their job well done. Representing the school in athletics 
made the women’s tennis team pleased with the accomplishments. 
“I didn’t realize we actually won until Sunday morning when I 
read the paper. It seemed like a dream, but when I woke up, it was 
reality,” said Stacey Smith (’97). 

Whether or not athletics were your niche, teams, teamwork and 

pride were qualities that played a part in successfully moving 
through the years, and eventually, moving on in life.

joy a night of fun 
with friends. Jun- 
ior Prom took 
place on April 26, 
1996, at Crystal 
Gardens, Marys- 
ville. Fifty dollar 
tickets included 
dinner, a change 
in tradition that 
some welcomed. 

“I liked having dinner included; 
it was one less thing to worry 

about,” said Aaron Schuck (’97). 

While students were sealed for 
dinner. Studio 35 took profes- 
sioal pictures. Many students 
chose to have their pictures done 
to capture the magic of the night. 
“I enjoyed prom because I got to 
see all my friends dress up. They 
looked so different,” said Dave 
Kleinstiver (’97). 

Dancing with special friends 
made prom night one to remem- 
ber. “The idea of getting all 
dressed up and feeling very ele- 
gant is part of the prom experi- 
ence,” said Joni Breathour (’97).

Gathered by 8:00 in the morning at Lighthouse Beach, the Class of 
1997 stood shivering in tye-dyed tee-shirts and Port Huron Northern 
apparel. As mosquitos bit, students swatted them away, found their 
friends and got their smiles ready for the senior class picture. The 
Fort Gratiot Lighthouse, built over 160 years ago, in 1829, symbol- 
ized union and guidance that would lead members of the senior class 
into their future. The lighthouse, still in use today, is a reminder of 
that guidance. Much like ships, the senior class would travel through 
different currents in life, perhaps sometimes looking back for a focal 
point, found during the high school years. Here, they might find it, 
with their class — the Class of 1997. (Photo by Mr. Charles May) 


Hello, my name is Kimberly Taylor. 1 went to visit the 
President of the United States at the Fisher Theatre in De- 
troit, Michigan. I had the best seat ever. I was in the seventh 
row, because the first five rows were for senators, mayors, 
and other important people like that. 

After he had delivered the best speech, he came down 
onto the floor to greet the people. As I made my way up to 
the front row the excitement was building inside of me. I 


saw Congressman David Bonior and his wife who helped 
me climb over the chairs to get in position to meet the Pres- 
ident. Mrs. Bonior said, “Just reach out your hand and he 
will see you.’* At that moment the president was about three 
feet away from me, boy was I ever hyped up. Then I came 
face to face with the leader of our country. I explained that 
it was my birthday, and that I was seventeen. He wished me 
a “Happy Birthday,” then asked me my name. At that point, 
my mind went blank, so I just kept shaking his hand until 
Secret Service started to pull my hand away. By that time 
my mom wanted a picture, so I got to pose with the President 
of the United States and one of my personal idols. This was 
the happiest day of my life and the best birthday gift that I 
could ever receive.

other band members play for their peers. BOBMSHELL. their band, has been 
in existence since 1992. (Photo by Kimberly Elston) 

Ever since eighth grade our band, Bombshell, has been 
forming. Through many changes the current band consists 
of me, Jason McDonald, Tony Loxton, and two students 
attending Marysville, Derek Cisco and Justin Baldwin. We 
have played a variety of places, including Sabrina Row- 
land’s basement way back in ninth grade. Recently we have 
played at Clear Choices, Pine Grove Park, the I-Rock Music 


Cafe, and the Majestic Theatre. 

We have played in front of some big crowds. At first it 
was a little intimidating in front of an audience, but as time 
went by we all got used to it. The more the crowd responds 
to our music, the better we perform. 

It started out as just getting together with friends and try- 
ing, but it has evolved into more. It’s not only fun but it is 
also a creative outlet. Through the years we’ve watched our- 
selves progress and feel more and more comfortable playing 
with each other. 

Picture the year 2015. When your offspring pull out your 
dusty CDs and you can say, “Hey, I used to know those 
guys. I think they jammed in our cafeteria once.” 

— Jason McDonald 


I never really chose to sing and dance. My father is a 
singer and my mother is an excellent dancer, so it was in 
my genes, I guess. 

At three years old my mom put me in dance classes and 
I stuck with it till fourth grade, when my parents made me 
quit. For four years, I studied every music video for dance 
moves and made up dances for my friends and 1. 

Then my mother allowed me to take dance classes again 


in eighth grade, and I've stuck with it. I sing with my dad 
at St. Stephens Catholic church every Saturday, and when 
he has to travel out of state to sing I usually go with him. 
It’s not every day that a girl comes home and participates in 
a jam session, but for me it’s just another day in my life. I 
don't feel as if we are different, though others see it that 
way. It's fun and it is practice for the future. Singing in front 
of a crowd doesn’t get to me anymore. I sang in front of my 
peers in eighth grade, and after that I could survive any au- 
dience! We most recently did a benefit for Chad Coleman 
at Fort Gratiot School. Dad has taught me everything I know 
about music and I plan on using the talents to form a career 
after school.

“Hiya” from England! Things are so completely different 
here — the food, music, school, speech and friends. It has 
been “bril” to have this change. While here I’ve been able 
to travel to London, Stratford, Blackpool, and Nottingham, 
but for some reason I missed Robin Hood. I've also been 
able to travel to Peek District National Park and Chatsworth 
Castle. They are gorgeous parks filled with acres of cattle 
and sheep herds. The sheep actually wandered through the 



There are about 800 students between the age of 11-19. 
We have our own hall with a special room where students 
can go during their free lesson (study hall) and listen to 
music. The teachers don’t go in the room so it is a place 
where we can get together. All the students have to stand 
when the headmaster enters the hall and can only sit when 
motioned to do so, REALLY something to get used to! 

Everyone is really nice here and are all surprisingly 
friendly to the stupid American. They usually “take the 
mickey’’ (make fun of) my accent, which I'm told is almost 
Canadian. AHHH!!! All the adventures I’ve had have been 
exceptionally good. 

— Travis Stein 


My name is Josh Wilkins, A.K.A. TiNY. My uniqueness 
is in computers and my job. My formal title at the place I 
work. Best Buy, is Head Computer Technician. This means 
I manage a budget, do paperwork, write schedules, and su- 
pervise over two computer techs — both which are older than 
myself. I’m not considered a supervisor or they would have 
to pay me more. My day goes like this: first hour P.O.D. 

My world 

then two hours of Tech Aid helping out Paul Kruse around 
the building, then I’m off to work at 1 1 :40, punch in at 12: 

00 then work until 8:00. I'm settled home at 9:00. Yes, lucky 
me, only three classes, but would you like a 6:30 to 9:00 
day, 5 days a week? 

Skills I have acquired at school and from hours at sitting 
in front of the computer will actually end up a nice paying 
job. I don’t look at Best Buy as a final job in life, but a place 
to get more schooling and experience. I gain experience that 
you can’t gain in the classroom, like how to talk to a man 
swearing at you and threatening to sue you because his print- 
er doesn’t work. My job and school take up most of my life; 

1 try to relax and have fun with people that are close to me.

For Five years, I was a competitive, amateur figure skater 
with the Port Huron Figure Skating Club. Once my sopho- 
more year in high school began, I decided it would be best 
to stop skating. Going to the arena for three hours a day, six 
days a week, got very hard, considering the workload 1 was 
getting in school. I chose to make school my top priority. 

Thankfully, my long years of training were not in vain. 


This year I began instructing a Learn To Skate Program at 
Glacier Point Arena every Saturday morning. My students 
range from two years old to twelve years old. Some of the 
toddlers are so small that they can not even reach the top 
edge of the boards to hold on! The older students can skate 
across the entire ice surface with no help at all. I am hoping 
to continue teaching during college, so I am anxious to see 
how my kids progress over the next few years. 

Skating has been my life; my pride and joy. My former 
coach, Patrice Kettlewell, was my guiding light as a com- 
petitor, and she has continued to be my inspiration, as I am 
now in her shoes. I owe her all the thanks in the world, for 
getting me where I am today. 

— Letitia Wylin 

I started playing the clarinet in sixth grade. 1 joined one 
group. Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp. I went to Blue Lake for 
two weeks of my summer. 

When 1 decided to try out for Northern Aurora Drum and 
Bugle Corps, I never thought I would make it. Before trying 
out for NA I had to take Trumpet/Coronet lessons. 

Traveling with NA for three months was the hardest sum- 


mer of my life. On an average day, we would practice for 
twelve hours in the sun, then get ready for a competition 
that night. I had a lot of fun, learned so much about myself, 
and really matured for the first time. 

The next year I did not go back. Instead, I accepted an 
invitation to tour Europe for two weeks with Spirit of Amer- 
ica National Honor Band. I met over two hundred people 
(ages 14-22) from all over the United States. 

To this day 1 can't say which experience was best. I learn- 
ed so much from both activities. NA gave me a greater un- 
derstanding for music and marching. Spirit of America left 
me with a better understanding of the different cultures on 
the other side of the world.

Art is not my hobby, it is my life. Creating art has always 
been my means of expression for so long now it is as if it 
were a function, like I am an art machine. I don’t really have 
a muse, I react to what is happening in my surroundings and 
how my mind interprets it personally. I get a lot of emotions 
1 don’t even know exist out onto paper. Some visions I have 
come spontaneously, as if I can’t help what I see in my 


mind’s eye. They are there constantly, like my ideas are filed 
away, ready for access. New ones are constantly in produc- 
tion waiting impatiently to be executed onto something 

For me personally, I live in art, it is all around me if I 
want it to be, if I realize it. I live in my mind and in the 
minds of others most of the time, like it’s a different dimen- 
sion. Looking at things in a completely different way, pick- 
ing aspects not many people think about or see. I try to go 
beyond the surface and sleep there, to enrich my dreams and 
my art. Anyone can live in, or be an artist, all you have to 
do is think. Art is anything that stays alive when civiliza- 
tions, governments, cultures and people fade or die.

Tennis is my favorite sport. I have played tennis since I 
was about eight years old. I became quite active in the sport 
when 1 was twelve. I have had countless lessons at the Port 
Huron Tennis House ever since 1 moved here in tenth grade. 
This year I will have four hours of lessons there per week. 
1 have also played in many local, high school, and SEMTA 
(South Eastern Michigan Tennis Association) tournaments. 


I have won local tournaments such as the Robinson, the 
Sam Kromer Flights and the Port Huron Tennis House Jun- 
ior Winter Open. 1 have also reached the quarterfinals in 
USTA Tournaments in places such as Clarkson and Flint. 
Playing these matches has helped to improve my game. 

Tennis has played a big part in my life. It was the major 
cause for my move to Northern my sophomore year. My old 
high school did not have a tennis team, and that was some- 
thing that I really wanted to do, so I came to Northern. Var- 
sity tennis has been a great experience for me. 

My philosophy on tennis is that if you play hard and never 
give up on a point you'll win most of your matches.

To go abroad for a year is something tha* I have always 
wanted to do. When I got the chance to go to the USA and 
study at an American high school, I did not hesitate for a 
second. Most of all because I knew it would be a great ex- 
perience for me. I would meet so many people, and I would 
have a lot of fun, but also because I would improve my 
English and I would get to know a new country and culture. 


Before 1 came here I had studied English in Sweden for 
eight years. I began to study English when I was ten years 
old, but today in Sweden children start learning English al- 
ready at the age of eight. Sweden is a quite small country, 
with a population of only nine million people. Swedish is 
our language and only Norwegians and Danish might un- 
derstand it. 

We must learn English to be able to communicate and do 
business with other countries, and that is why we begin 
learning English so early in school. Many students also learn 
German or French, or even more languages, which also are 
important for us to know as citizens of a European country 
and members of the European Union.

“All right everybody! 
Let’s bring this meeting to 

On various days 
throughout an average 
week, student council of- 
ficers and class represen-

discuss class events, organ-

class activities going.

such as car- 
sales, candy 

sales, sweatshirt sales and 
corralling class members 
to participate in assembly 
events, like the tug-of-war, 
the obstacle course, and the 
grape toss. “It seems that 
it has always been hard to 
get people involved in the 
past,” said Leslie Manui- 
low (’97), “but they are al- 
ways a lot of fun once they 
do get involved.”

From day one of Mardi 
Gras, student council offi- 
cers and classes planned 
cart-races, wall-building, 
and other spirited events. 
Like all student council 
jobs, a job such as co- 
chairing Mardi Gras re- 
quired diplomacy and peo- 
ple skills. 

Student Council works 
not only be- 
fore and af- 
ter school 
hours, but 
also during 
the school 
day , as 
well. By 
closely with 
their advi- 
ser, Ms. Pa- 
t r i c i a 
Knapp, and 
class advisers, in the office, 
student council members 
accomplish assigned tasks. 

Even those who were 
not elected or appointed by 
their peers were encour- 
aged to become involved 
in planning class procedu- 
res. Student council was 
open to all those who w ant- 
ed to lend a hand.

As a driving force behind 
school and community in- 
volvement, Student Coun- 
cil has always been a group 
of inspired and able indi- 
viduals. Unlike many other 
organizations, the student 
council is 
elected by 
election to 
further their 
classes' in-

fund-raiser contests which 
ran on student involve-

Benefiting the commu-

sponsored the annual Red

“This is WORW. Test-

Dead air temporarily re- 
placed the sounds of alter- 
native, industrial, dance, 
and classic rock over the 
airwaves on 91.9 WORW 
on the first day of school, 
due to a freak of nature. 
During August, power was 
cut when the radio trans- 
mitter was struck by light- 
ning. De-

early in the 
year, broad-

Soon after repairs were 
made, music, news, and 
weather hit the airwaves. 
Program director Sarah 
Norris (’97) delved into 
FCC paperwork and re- 
ports, public service an- 
nouncements, and devised 
air-shift schedules for 
shows. One daily news 
show, hosted by Brian Ho- 
ward (’98) and Marty 
Zmiejko (’98). brought 


strange tidbits and unusual 
facts to eager listeners. “I 
like radio because it brings 
me recognition, fame, and 
fortune," said Brian Ho- 
ward (’98). 

With lines open from 7 
AM to 7 PM, the station 
took calls for requests. Ra- 
dio developed professional 
skills in students who had 
taken a semester of speech 
to develop 
skills. “I 
take radio 
because I’m 
about a ca- 
reer in 
ing,’’ said 
K i rsty n 


Early mornings, late 
evenings, and keeping the 
hottest music in rotation 
were all aspects that broad- 
casting students contribut- 
ed to the station. “I joined 
it for fun and for the ex- 
perience,’’ said Jenni Mux- 
low (’97), “but radio really 
forms a family.*’

Their mission, as they 
chose to accept it, was al- 
ways clear. Students 
Against Drunk Driving 
(SADD) strove to increase 
community awareness of 
substance abuse and to 
provide constructive activ- 
ities without the use of in-

mission statement, SADD

with Sweet Adelaines. and 
distributing red ribbons as 
a reminder to be drug and 
alcohol-free, these mem- 
bers took an active role in 
the school and community.

said Bryan Day ('00).

Blinding white snow, 
blazing blue skies, and a 
sprinkling of pine trees 
provided a picturesque 
scene for a skiing expedi- 
tion. But could an angular, 
steep slope be just as at- 
tractive? For those gliding 
down the hills, the rapid 
speed and the cool crisp 
winter air across their faces 
made the perfect day for 
avid skiers. 

“The rush 
of adrenaline 
that I get 
down the hill 
is enough to 
keep me 
coming back 
for more,” 
stated Kara 

('98). The classic rash of ex- 
citement and the thrill of liv- 
ing on the edge of the slope 
were the main reasons why 
Ski Club kept bringing mem- 
bers back. 

Ski Club also gave 
skiers the chance to go ski-

also never had to worry 
about finding a ride out to

their skiing skills.

worked together but also took 
time out to work individually. 
“The team is improving, the de- 
fense has cut down on errors, and 
we have a solid hitting line-up,” 
said Ms. Mary Kay Baribcau. the 
team coach. 

While the spectators enjoyed 
the softball game, the players had 
fun too. All the players worked 
together to achieve the winning 
record. “I like the excitement of 
the game and the feeling of mak- 
ing a great hit,” said Amanda 
Bishop (’97). As the team im- 
proved throughout the season, 
everyone enjoyed the sport.

The game was tied up with a 
score of 7-7. This game was one 
example of many close games 
played by the JV and freshman 
softball teams. 

Being on a softball team re- 
quired a lot of skill in different 
areas. “Tough determination, 
high goals, and perseverance are 
big factors in softball. Softball is 
not only mental, but physical as 
well/’ said Melissa Lunney 
f 98). The softball team played in 
almost every kind of weather — 

through rain and cold they con- 
tinued to practice. 

As more students expressed an 
interest in softball, the competi- 
tion in tryouts became more dif- 
ficult, but the players persevered 
and the people who demonstrated 
the most skill made the teams.

A Homerun Made 
for an Exciting Game 

The thunderous crack of the 
hat and the excitement as players 
steal home are just two aspects of 
the game that bring the baseball 
crowds back, game after game. 

“Our baseball team has been 
working hard and we are very 
dedicated. It has been a great ex- 
perience for me to work with 
such a good group of young 
men/’ said Coach Rob Durecka.

hours of their time to prepare for 
the tough competition. “I think 
the team this year had more talent 
than teams in the past. Our hard 
work resulted in many wins,” 
said Trevor Weston (’98). 

Assertiveness and quick deci- 
sion making skills are important 
aspects of baseball. Dedication, 
which the team demonstrated 
throughout their performances, 
was also a key part of the base- 
ball season. The two teams 
worked hard to utilize their skills 
to the best of their abilities. By 
pulling together, the baseball 
teams showed their hard work 
and perseverance.

The Opponent With 
Seconds To Spare 

“You're out!" yelled the um- 
pire, and the start of the varsity 
baseball season began with a 
cheering crowd. 

“At the beginning of the sea- 
son we were doing well. We 
were 6-4 in the MAC Red divi- 
sion and 9-5 overall. As the sea- 
son progressed our goal was to 
improve as much as we could," 
said Coach Larry Klink. Coach 
Klink retired from teaching in 
June of 1995, but he returned to 
coach his eighteenth season of 
varsity baseball with a new group 
of talented team members. 

The team consisted of seniors, 
juniors, and sophomores. Every 
team member added his own 

touch of talent to the team. “I am 
honored to be playing with this 
group of guys. Hopefully I can 
improve my talents by learning 
from them," said Lee Naplin 

The team made it through Dis- 
trict play and moved on to Re- 
gional with a record of 13-5. 
The defeat of Lapeer West in Re- 
gional play sent the team on to 
semi-final action.

“I joined track to have fun and

ways considered a team sport, the 
ladies pulled together and 
worked hard to complete a suc-

Enduring the Pressure 
of Competition 

Endurance, speed, strength 
and stamina are necessary quali- 
ties to he a contributing member 
of the men's track team. Perse- 
verance and determination 
showed throughout the season; 
when the varsity team was left 
shorthanded because of team in- 
juries, underclassmen had to 
work to excel in their perform- 
ances. “We needed people to 
step up this year and they did,” 
said Coach Craig Dickinson. 

While plagued by bad weather 
during a cold spring, the team 
had to make adjustments in their 
preparations. Some runners 
found it difficult to do well when 
the weather was not cooperating. 
“Bad weather is hard to perform 

and warm up in,” said Tony 
Malachi ('98). 

Despite bad weather and the 
injuries, the team pressed on for 
a successful season. Led by cap- 
tains Mark Buchanan ('96), Ja- 
mie Danna ('96), Matt Ward 
('96). and Ken Nelson ('97), the 
team achieved a win over Grosse 
Pointe South and had strong fin- 
ishes at the Husky and PHHS re-

Facing the Opponent 
With Force 

Silence on the court began what 
would be a triumph or defeat for the 
members of the men's tennis team. 
With an energetic serve the match 
began, each player's determination 
shining in each forceful swing. 

Junior varsity coach Mr. Joe 
Wing, and varsity coach Mr. A1 
Wright, witnessed successes and 
losses throughout the season. “This 
was probably the best season for 
me; I had fun and learned from my 
experiences. Although tennis was a

lot of work, I would say that it was 
worth it," said Jeff Oswald (’%). 

The two teams spent grueling 
hours after school at Sanborn Park 
perfecting skills for competition. 
This effort was evident as the teams 
placed 2nd in the Clarkston and 
Warren Mott Invitationals, and var- 
sity placed 1st in the All Saints-Bay 
Invitational. “The guys on the team 
were really close. We had a definite 
feeling of togetherness," said Rob- 
ert Ross ('98). 

Each member took with him 
many memories of all of the hours 
of work spent to achieve a common 
goal, victory.

Each member anxiously awaited 
her turn on the starting line-up. 
With time running out, the oppos- 
ing team had not scored, resulting 
in a victory for the girl’s soccer 

After seven strenuous days of 
tryouts, forty of the fifty were cho- 
sen for the teams. “It was easier to 
relax and it wasn't as intimidating 
as last year. Not as many people 
tried out. I kind of knew what to 
expect so it wasn’t as difficult,” 
said Dawn Thomas (’98). 

Each team consisted of twenty 
players. Varsity had three captains: 
Deena Currie (’96), Sarah Kovach 
(’96), and Andrea Krause (’%). JV

Each team member was an asset 
to the many wins the team had.

a team and I think that is one of the 
reasons we won so many games,”

team had produced five outstand-

Times Herald's All Area Blue Wa- 
ter Boy's Soccer Team. Seniors 
Nate Grace, Oscar Tache, Josh 
Bennett, Zack Pollack, and Matt

John Schneider was named soccer 
Coach of the Year. “I was hon- 
ored to he on the All Area team. I 
worked hard at my game this sea- 
son," said Nate Grace ('97). 

The J.V. team completed the 
season with eleven wins. Two of 
those wins were against cross town 
rival Port Huron High School.

Rhythm, alertness, and good 
judgment helped the women's 
cross country team win the Port

consecutive year. Women's cross 
country was a challenging, excit-

dedication of the members of the 
men's cross country team to com-

Practice occurred five days a 
week for two hours at a time. Run- 
ners also practiced outside of des-

lifting," said Mike Vigrass (’98).

Competition Calls 
for Accuracy 

Concentration and quickness 
were two factors of golf and 
equestrian. From putting on the 
green to riding in the ring, team 
members worked hard to have a 
great season. 

The golf team consisted of thir- 
teen young men who started out 
the season well. They practiced 
day after day at the Port Huron 
Golf Club. The J.V. team finished 
the season with six wins. Varsity 
ended the season with seven wins. 
“It was a fun year. Our team

worked hard and I hope to do bet- 
ter next year/' said Ryan Smith 

The equestrian team did more 
than practice and train — they also 
put in hours of time and effort to 
prepare their horses for meets. The 
team had three meets for the 1996 
season. They placed second in all 
of their meets. “We had a great 
time and the team worked hard to 
reach the top. Hopefully next year 
we'll make it to State Finals,” said 
Heather Cook ('99). 

The successful completion of 
the season for both teams showed 
that their hard work and practice 
lime paid off.

At the beginning of the season, 
1 1 team members attended a train-

camp was tun because it was sort 
of a bonding experience,” said 
Jennifer Palmateer ('98). 

Even with all the preparation,

little slowly. Losing their first 
games, they continued to practice 
hard and soon their commitment to 
the game paid off. They defeated 
L'Anse Creuse North by an II 

point margin. 

“As the season went on, our 
basketball skills got better because 
we were more aware of one anoth- 
er,” said Amy Hampton ('97). 
Learning how each girl played on 
the court helped the girls to im- 
prove their teamwork and overall 

Ending the season with wins 
over East Detroit, Romeo, and Port 
Huron High, the girls knew they 
had done their best.

for a Victory 

Practice paid off in the end for 
the J.V. women's basketball team; 
their season ended with a 13-7 rec- 
ord. After losing the first four 
games, the J.V. team got serious 
and started playing to win. Mr. 
Brian Jamison joined the Lady 
Huskies for the winning season as 
a first time girls' basketball coach 
at Northern.

season with fourteen wins. ‘‘When 
we played as a team, we won 
games," said Lisa Grady ('(X)). The 
freshmen also had the talent of new 
coach, Ms. Carrie Hickson, who 
joined the Lady Husky coaching

son was a big factor in the success 
of our team," said Andrea Nestle

Helped Complete a 
Winning Season 

Running into the right hole, 
blocking the right man, or passing 
to the right man was more hard 
work than play. The young men on 
the J.V. and Freshmen football 
teams learned what it took to win 
football games. Both teams prac- 
ticed four days a week. Practicing 
helped players improve their game 
and learn new techniques. “We 
used repetition to remember the 
plays we learned, which made it 
easy at games," said Brad Gniew- 
ek ('99). 

Scoring touchdowns and block- 
ing opponents were two aspects of 
the game that the teams focused 
on. Josh Purcell ('98) said, “It is 
not hard to block for the quarter- 

back, because the quarterback is 
always moving around and it is 
easy to keep your guy away from 

Both teams successfully ended 
another season with records of 
5-4 and 6-2-1. The winning re- 
cords could not have been 
achieved without the help of the 
coaching staff. “I thought the 
coaches knew what they were do- 
ing. They were the best coaches 1 
have had," said Reid Charboneau

and got through some tough 
times. Our work paid off when 
we walked off as winners at the 
Marysville game,” said Trevor 
Weston ('98). 

Coach Dahlke. who was out 
for most of the season with a 
back injury, will not be returning 
next year to coach, because of his 
new job assignment as assistant 
principal. “We jelled together as 
a team, even though we had some 
hard times. We played well even 
though Dahlke was gone. The 
team will miss Coach next year.” 
said Matt Schock ('98).

Keeping the 
Game Alive 

Practice started in June for the 
cheerleading squads. They attended 
a camp in Pennsylvania to prepare 
for their new season. At camp they 
learned sideline chants and mounts. 
The girls learned new ideas for 
cheers and ways to keep the crowd 
positive. The cheerleaders walked 
away from the camp with great 
memories and more cheerleading 
knowledge. “I learned a lot at camp. 
Everyone bonded and got along 
great.” said Amy Ravin ('97). 

Summer practices in the morning 
and after school practices in the fall 
were how the cheerleaders spent 
most of their time. They cheeaxi in 
cold rainy weather and warm breezy 
weather. Their spirit and enthusiasm

helped the crowd forget what the 
weather was like. “It was fun cheer- 
ing for the football teams. The team 
had its ups and downs, but overall 
they came out good.” said Amy 
Hodgins (’99). 

The spirit and dedication dis- 
played by the cheerleaders kept the 
game alive for the crowd and the 
football teams.

and Cheers Lead 
To Victory 

Tryouts, long practices, basket- 
ball games, and competitions kept 
the winter season cheerleaders 
busy. When football season ended, 
cheerleading advisor Stacy Hoster- 
man held tryouts for the basketball 
and competitive cheer squads. 
Thirty freshmen, sophomore, and 
junior girls were chosen to repre- 
sent the teams. 

The varsity squad cheered at 
basketball games and traveled to 
various competitions in the area

including ones at Port Huron High. 
Marysville and Bad Axe. At com- 
petitions the girls had a chance to 
view the cheer routines of other 
schools; they also had the oppor- 
tunity to display their talents in 
front of judges. “Competing is a 
lot of fun because you get to meet 
new people and have a chance to 
see what other teams arc doing,” 
said Sarah Jurk ('98). 

Although cheerleaders are 
sometimes not considered athletes, 
by all their hard work from De- 
cember to March they showed that 
they have as much athletic talent 
as anyone.

Guarding the

Leading by two points, de- 
pending on a free throw and fast 
break layups were familiar to the 
varsity basketball team. During a 
game against Utica, Ryan Cogley 
('97) sank a jump shot in the last 
second of overtime to beat the 
undefeated team. “Anyone could 
have done it. 1 was just lucky to 
get the pass and make the shot," 
said Cogley. 

The varsity team was moved 
from the MAC Red division to 
the MAC White division, which 
put the guys against teams like

North, teams that the Huskies 
had not played since assistant 
coach Brian Jamison played

shine and helps as with our game," 
said Brad Gneiewek ('99). Both 
coaches used their new positions to 
create a ball club that will one day 
be able to play varsity level basket- 
ball and win. 

Practice helped the teams learn 
the necessities of the game and 
taught them what it took to win. 
“Winning is the best part of the 
sport, but it isn't always possible. 
We have to play as a team, not as 
individuals, in order to be success- 
ful." said Jack Molinaro ('00). Nev- 
er giving up was a philosophy both 
teams learned well and accom- 
plished throughout the season.

Facing a new season with an un- 
familiar face, the varsity volleyball 
team had a high standard to maintain. 

A new coach, Mrs. Lon Wilson, 
took over the position of a well re- 
spected longtime verteran of coach- 
ing. Mr. Ron Davey coached vol- 
leyball for fifteen years, leading his 
team to state competitions more 
than once. Coach Davey was well 
liked and extremely respected. On 
January 16, proceeding the match 
against the Marysville Vikings, Mr. 
Davey was honored with a plaque 
for 1 5 years of dedication to a sport 
he loved. “I was a little over- 
whelmed, but a feeling of sadness 
came over me. I stood there with 
tears in my eyes and remembered 

the previous years," said former 
coach Ron Davey. 

“We built a strong program dur- 
ing my freshman anvi sophomore 
years. We don't have a lot of ex- 
perience, but we have a lot of heart. 
Coach Wilson is helping us devel- 
op our skills so we can win more 
games," said Katie Voss ('98). 
Coach Wilson helped the girls fo- 
cus their attention on the key skills 
it took to win.

It s the third game — the score is

Coaches Leslie Harwood and

(* 00 ). 

The junior varsity and freshmen 
teams used their practice time to re- 
view the basic moves that are used 
to win games. After the simple hit- 
ting techniques were mastered, at- 
tention was focused on more diffi- 
cult moves such as blocking and 
spiking. “Practice helped me re- 
view my skills. Coach helped me 
improve my game a lot,” said 
Lindsay Gerstenberger ('99). 

Through all of the hard work, the 
Lady Huskies kept trying and suc- 
cessfully completed another win- 
ning season.

The Opponent To 
The Mat 

Wrestling was an individual 
sport, one of few. Team members 
were allowed to cheer for one an- 
other, but they could not help each 
other out on the mat. “I like wres- 
tling because when you step onto 
the mat, you meet your opponent 
one-on-one. There is no team to 
help you win," commented Ryan 
Verna ('97). Even though wres- 
tling was individual, team mem- 
bers helped each other during 
practice and by cheering them on

Hours of conditioning and con- 
tinually repeating the same move 
led the wrestlers to a decent year. 
The team captains, Jeff Genaw 
(’97) and James Nelson ('98), 
helped the wrestlers keep focused 
on winning. While the team 
worked hard on the mat, they also 
had to earn four credits per semes- 
ter to slay on the team. 

The love of the sport was not 
the only reason the team members 
joined the squad. “Wrestling was 
a fun way to help me stay in 
shape," Nick Dysinger ('98). The 
competition made the sport worth

Toward the Net 
to Score a Goal 

Each period of play was filled 
with aggression and excitement 
as the men's hockey team dis- 
played their skills on ice. As 
quickly as the puck moved, the 
men had to keep the pace and 
make wise choices as to where 
the puck was to travel next. 

In order to have the best sea- 
son possible, the team practiced 
every afternoon at McMorran 
Arena or Glacier Point, where 
Coach Darycl McCarrel gave the 
young men pointers on improv- 
ing upcoming games. “The team 
has their minds set on what we 
need to do. If we keep it up, we 
will go far,” said Jeremy 
VanNest ('97). 

However, it look more than 

just practice at hitting a puck 
back and forth to play well. An 
open mind was required to con- 
centrate and do well at the game. 
“We all have the same goals as 
a team. None of us put our indi- 
vidual accomplishments over the 
well-being of the team,” said 
Nate Heier ('97). Having practic- 
es, goals, and work ethics helped 
the team reach their goals and ac- 
complish winning games.

Philosophy — “Apathy in the

Overheard — “Nate has been a 
hard worker and leader for our 
hockey team for three years. He 
leads by example and is the most 
unselfish player on the ice. He is 
always willing to help. It has been 
a pleasure coaching Nate,’* said 
Coach Daryel McCarrel.

The words “extremely dedicated" describe the seniors who re- 
ceived academic honors. These students spent their entire high school 
careers striving for excellence in all areas of the curriculum. 

After seven semesters, four individuals stood at the head of the 
class with the high honor of valedictorians: Shannon Conard, Adam 
Nye, Sheela Parekh, and Joy Wojtas. Christopher Pen/ien was named 
salutatorian after maintaining a cumulative grade point average of 

Fifteen percent of the 351 seniors graduated with the honor of 
maintaining a cumulative grade point average of 3.5 or higher 
throughout seven semesters of academic instruction. Many of these 
students received Academic Scholars diplomas upon graduation. The 
requirements for the Academic Scholars diploma were based on the 
five qualities that colleges wanted their students to possess — mainly 
the quality of the program in relation to the ability of the student, 
trend in grades, cumulative GPA. standardized test scores, and extra- 
curricular activities. 

In addition to the honors placed on valedictorians, salutatorian and 
academic scholar recipients, graduation ceremonies honored the ac- 
ademic top twenty, the twenty students who maintained the highest 
cumulative grade point averages of their class. 

“I see the academic top twenty is the best example of the quality 
of Northern students. These twenty kids have excelled in their class 
work and worked extremely hard throughout their high school ca- 
reers," said Mr. Keith Bricker. 

The dedication and hard work of these students brought high hon- 
ors and recognition upon graduation.

would like to attend the University of Mi- 
chigan and major in a business related

u* While masses of Generation X love 
the classic Star Wars Trilogy, many 
were in diapers when it first appeared 
on the big screen. With theaters selling 
vouchers up to a week before the big 
day, on January' 31, 1997, Star Wars 
was re-released around the country. 

Much-anticipated action at the 
World Series between the New York

nastics. track and field events, and 
swimming events. Olympian Michael 
Johnson was the first American man to

Whitney Houston, Courtney 
Love, and Madonna took to the big 
screen in box-office toppers includ- 
ing The Preachers Wife , The People 
vs. Larry t Flynt , and Evita. Musical 
talent proved necessary for Madon- 
na and Whitney, but critics say that 
Courtney Love has proved herself a 
true actress. 

Basketball playing villains, car- 
toon superheroes, and Michael Jor-

The 1997 Spirit, “2 Blue.” represents a new direction for Port 
Huron Northern’s yearbook. Editor-in-chief Katie Bugaiski and sec- 
tion editor April Armstrong attended a four-day Herff Jones work- 
shop at Alma College: in addition, editors-in-chief Katie Bugaiski 
and Laura Kelchum and section editors April Armstrong. Jenny 
Rogers, and Amanda Clouse stayed at Michigan Stale University 
for five days of intense yeai+Kx^k training with MIPA (Michigan 
Interscholastic Press Association). As a result of this study, the stu- 
dents determined that it was time to change the look of Spirit from 
the traditional sections. ”2 Blue’* is divided into a ”2” section with 
all the underclassmen and academics, and a "Blue” section con- 
taining seniors and organizations. 

The Herff Jones Printing Company in Shaw nee Mission. Kansas, 
printed 1 100 copies o (Spirit, which sold for S3 8. 00 on picture day 
and $42.00 thereafter. Sixty-four pages were printed in four color 
process. 32 of which used spot color. Colonial Blue was used to 
develop the “Blue” concept. 

The cover is custom embossed Vibratex Flint base material 
#1060 with a 120 pt. Davey’s binder board. Gold foil and navy 
silkscrcen are the applied elements, as well as a Mission grain. 

The end sheets are Fibertext recycled slock selection RE-04 Tun- 
dra printed in navy ink HJ281. Paper stock throughout the book is 
100# Bordeaux. 

Headline and caption treatments vary from section to section: the 
main body copy is in 10 and 12 point Times Roman. 

Port Huron Northern is a member of CSPA (Columbia Scholastic 
Press Association). MIPA (Michigan Interscholastic Press Associ- 
ation). GUPA (Great Lakes Interscholastic Press Association), and 
ASPA (American Scholastic Press Association). All four associa- 
tions have critiqued Spirit over the past ten years. MIPA has award- 
ed Spirit seven Spartan Awards. CSPA two Medalist awards, a 
Bronze Finalist, and several First Place awards: GLIPA one Buck- 
eye award and several First Place awards: and ASPA several First 
Place awards, five with Special Merit. 

The goal of the Spirit staff is to produce the best journalistic book 
possible within the given time frame and the school and community 
an appropriate and entertaining history, reference, and memory 
book of the year. 

Mrs. Peggy Devendorf was the yearbook teacher/adviser. 

The Spirit staff extends its appreciation to portrait photographers 
Mr Max Beck and Mrs. Lynn Morden of Jostcn's Photography for 
the quality of their work and their commitment to delivering year- 
book photos within the necessary lime frame. The staff also appre- 
ciates and acknowledges the contributions of the team photogra- 
pher, Mr. Dennis McDonald: activity photographer Mrs. Lynn Mor- 
den of Jostcn's Photography; and the staff at the Photo Factory for 
their promptness and cooperation at deadline time. 

The staff acknowledges principal Mr. James Goldsworthy for 
support in upgrading computers and in the growth of journalism in 
the school curriculum; Mr. Al Lewandowski and Mr. Paul Kruse 
for their assistance with ongoing technology development; assistant 
principal/athletic director Mr. Tom Rodenbaugh and athletic de- 
partment secretary Mrs. Kathy Stein for their help with athletics 
details; activities director Ms. Pal Knapp; assistant principals Mr. 
Richard Chapman and Mr. Craig Dahlke: curriculum directors Mrs. 
Louella Allen and Mr. Stanley Renner for both practical and moral 
support; account clerk Mrs. Mams Tcff; the wisdom and valued 
opinions of Mrs. Evonne VanderHeuvel: the office and secretarial 
staff; and the entire PHN staff for their support. 

Special thanks goes to Ms. Ann Robinson. Herff Jones plant con- 
sultant. for her expertise on site. Herff Jones sales representative 
Mr. Tony Noto has provided invaluable technical support as well 
as ongoing journalism and photography instruction and advice.

Dear Students, Staff, Anyone Who Cares . . . 


Before a year packed with student activities, sports, and academics 
could begin, a few dedicated Spirit staff members attended a summer 
journalism workshop at Michigan State University. There, with the 
help of experienced teachers and sponsors, we developed a concept 
for the 1997 yearbook. “2 Blue" became a labor of love as we de- 
veloped new divisions for each section of the book, and worked to 
intertwine sides of life common to students. 

The “2" section was created to reflect the two sides of life that 
students experience. Inside the building, students experience a chal- 
lenging curriculum and take part in activities. Outside the building, 
students experience lives complete with responsibilities but also fun. 
In the “Blue" section we attempted to capture the spirit of the senior 
year, the athletic scene, and the surrounding and ever-supporting 
community. In this book, we have tried to focus on what makes the 
year memorable. We hope you are able to view the format of this 
book as a positive change.

We would sincerely like to thank our staff for trying so hard and 
enduring our fits of rage at deadlines. The friendships we have cul- 
tivated here have made every LATE-NIGHT worth it. We would also 
like to thank our adviser, Mrs. Peggy Devendorf. for leaving us food 
at workshop and caring enough to stick with us throughout this crazy 
year. Though this was her first year as our adviser, her efforts to learn 
and teach encouraged us. We appreciate all of the help from the night 
custodial crew, especially Mike, for cleaning up our pizza boxes and 
wading through the mess we left in the office. We would like to 
extend our thanks to Mrs. Evonne VanderHeuvel for her advice and 
the training she provided to prepare us for our senior year as editors. 

We hope this book will be remembered as one that brought about 
good changes in future editions of Spirit. We wish Aubree and her 
staff the best of luck next year.

Another year flies past and students — seniors 
and underclassmen — celebrate moving on in life. 
Whether going to a college or a specialty training 
school, or simply moving on as an upperclass- 
man, change was inevitable. Looking back, mem- 
ories of football games, Mardi Gras, school plays, 
proms, and graduations will bring students to- 
gether as they recall treasured times in life. “So 
many things have happened this year,’’ said He- 
lena Jach (’97). “My senior year will be remem- 
bered because of my friends and all we have done
